Intravenous literature: Polgreen, P.M. et al. (2010) Wide Variability in the Use of Antimicrobial Lock Therapy and Prophylaxis among Infectious Diseases Consultants. Infection Control; Hospital Epidemiology. [ePub ahead of print].

Antimicrobial lock prophylaxis is relatively uncommon; only 19% of infectious diseases physicians reported using it at least once. Although antimicrobial lock therapy is more commonly used, we found a significant variation in practice patterns.
